Chanting Into Meditation is based on the yogic practice of raising energy and quickly stopping. The mantras chanted carry a vibration that shifts the consciousness into a broader perspective, as well as releasing the places of holding around the heart.
We chant for an extended period, then stop to experience the energy in stillness. Everyone is welcome to enjoy this shared experience and this community of committed practitioners. Shivaratri, an Indian Shiva festival, is celebrated in February, so Shiva chants will be our focus this month.
“Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It’s an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts. It deepens the channel of grace, and it’s a way of being present in the moment.”
